Who am I?

me and seth

Yes, this is just another page that is supposed to help you get to know me, but truth be told the best way you could get to know me is to meet me in person. This is a little dream I have ever since I first started blogging, which was in 2005, and my dream was to meet all the wonderful people , knowledgeable people, loving and caring people that became my friends, my followers or just silent bystanders. I imagine us all on a big green field filled with wild flowers, enjoying tea, coffee , cupcakes and milkshakes and just breathing, everyone among fellow poets, fellow photographers, fellow parents, fellow survivors, fellow beings.

If you read through the first paragraph, you allready know two most important things about me:

I am a Dreamer. I will storm into your life , I will enter your head and everything will feel like in the poem of W.B. Yeats.

I amΒ  Crazy. If I want something I go and get it, not matter what it is. If you want something, I will go and get it for you or we will do it together, no matter where or what it is. I will not let you deny me. If you tell me your wish, I will perhaps not be able to move mountains, river beds or fly great distances. But you will see me try to my fullest.

I feel misplaced, I deeply feel I belong somewhere in the middle ages. I want to be a bard. I am awaiting the arrival of a guitar, so I can start making music. It will not be good music, mind you, but it will be honest. Since this will all probably fail, seeing , in my ex husband’s words, my sense of music is completely illogical, forbidden and nonexistent, I plan on becoming a chef. I plan to cook. I plan to peel potatoes. Peeling potatoes calms me down,when during a day I can no longer stay ambivalent about the ugly buzz of everyday life, when I will either cry from everybody’s pain mixed with my own or I will peel. And cook. And write poetry. I will bake pies and I will pass them out on the streets and everybody will look at me like I am a lunatic.

Music is a great muse of inspiration for me. My favourite bands are Tool, A Perfect Circle, Puscifer (Yeah, I should’ve just said “Anything Maynard”), Acid Bath, Katatonia,Opeth,Anathema, Shinedown, Soundgarden, Cult of Luna, Sonata Arctica, Marilyin Manson,Porcupine Tree, Mars Volta and many more, including classical music.

I read. A LOT! I enjoy reading, giving feedback and discussing what I read. My favourite books are The Discworld Series, not just because I think they are ingenious, but because my resemblance to Granny Weatherwax is astounding. I feel as tho the character was written after me.

I was born with Sun blessed hair. When I turned 15, my hair was almost completely gray, and I mean ash gray. I died it to coral red, fell in love with myself like nowhere before and it is something I will keep doing untill I am no longer here. I play video games for as long as I can remember and it is a part of my life where I take great enjoyement. My other interests are collecting stuff, stamps, envelops, postcards, colorfull napkins and many other things, like icecream wrappers. I live in Belgrade, in which I am aswell eternaly in love. I name almost every item I own. My washing machine’s name is Margaret, my Ipods name is Carlos, my stuffed animal collection is regarded as live beings and I often give voice, story, poems and lullabies to all of them.

If there is anything you’d like to know or are curious about , ask! Lets be friends!

*You are now entering an updated section, which won’t be much, but bare with me*

I am twenty and a seven years old now. There is not much to say, or any point in talking about the changes. All I know is that I got to learn that there is wonderful people around me who, at least when around me, reflect my soul. They are kind, compassionate, brave, fucked up, weirdos, lovely freaks. They are the best and they make me feel like I shouldn’t join any clubs having the name of my current age, just so I could perhaps give them back the trust, the chance of joy they give to me. They are my guild, they are my family and I love them all to death

  1. I am so, so glad you came to my blog and led me to yours! I can truly believe having read just a sample of your poetry that your work will feel like W. B Yeats – its the perfect association from what I can see! I so look forward to following your work! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you very much for stoping by and leaving me a word or two, it is something that makes me happy a lot. I look forward to reading all your work and participating and being there for your journey aswell ! πŸ™‚

  2. A pleasure to meet you πŸ™‚

    • Likewise, it brings me great joy to meet and see people who glance inside my words. I am looking forward to diving into yours aswell!

  3. say hello to Margaret for me πŸ™‚
    Good luck with your family, I feel the love you have for your son – nothing is better than that.

    • Margaret says Hi back and tells you to tell me to use less fabric softener! (What can I do,it just smells soooo nice!)
      Thank you for your very kind words, it is the best compliment a mother can ever get!

  4. I also feel misplaced. I would not mind being a bard, I think.

    • Thank you for introducing yourself and sharing a little bit of yourself with me. I think one day we will be bards , even tho we allready in a way are allready:)

  5. *love*

  6. thanks for liking my post πŸ™‚

  7. You soul is from the middle ages…in your skin, you are at home. Thank you for following my blog. I read yours often, but sometimes I have to stop because I find myself falling in love…and I poison when it comes to love. Just read my blog. I love your exuberance for all people. I, too, would like to meet you, wherever you are..but I don’t dare. You middle ages people are warriors as well as lovers.

    • Thank you very much for these words, they feel as tho it took strenght to write them. From reading your writings, your love does not feel like poison, it feels like a deep knowledge. Many people turn their back on love, not wanting to accept that it is often sour, always alive and often in need of forgivenes like a being may need. I often aswell fall in love from reading, people frommy surroundings label it as “caring far too much”. I even wrote a poem once that I think described it perfectly. I think it is aswell one of the many threads braided through the calling of a Poet.

  8. You are awesome. A beautiful soul. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. πŸ™‚

  9. First, thanks for the follow! Second, you’re a really fun, interesting person (from what I have gathered so far :)) so I followed you back! TAG, you’re it! Jamy πŸ˜€

  10. Good to meet you. I love your poetry and story.

  11. Thank you for following my blog vivir, que no es poco. I’m glad to have find you this way. Your site is wonderful and beautiful.

  12. Mmm, milkshakes. Mmm, pie. Mmm, Yeats.

    And to reading and music and the whole lot of it: Cheers!

  13. How beautiful an introduction. I love your dream and feel your soul shining through your words. I’m so glad to have recently “met” you and looking forward to knowing you better-ly πŸ™‚

  14. Oloriel: I just reread your comment on my blog about sailing away with me and how you looked at my picture and knew I was a gentle soul. I am deeply touched by your feelings and appreciate anyone taking an interest in my work, or an interest in me. You said that your goal is to meet people face-to-face. What would you say? Who knows…I travel alot and we may meet one day. I love your writing…such passion in everything you write. I think I’d agree that you are stuck in the wrong age, but grateful that you are or I would never had met you. Hope your little boy is thriving. And your husband. I'[l be thinking about you today as I write.

    • It truly would be a dream come true and an honor to meet you and people like you and having a chance to speak out the poetry we write to each other. Thank you for asking about my family, the boys are fine and spoiled, just as it should be πŸ™‚

  15. I love that your washing machine is Margaret – thank you for letting me enter into your world and do not be scared of writing to your son, for the young are intuitive and he will know and see how talented his mother indeed is.

    • Thank you very much for your words. I keep trying to write to him,but somehow all the words I can think of cannot even begin to describe how beautiful he is, so I tend to speak to him with hugs and kisses πŸ˜€

  16. Well I have to say you are different my friend…I enjoyed reading the whole thing you wrote about you and at the same time astounded…Happy to meet you friend….my best wishes and thoughts sending you…
    ~ Kazi

    • Thank you very much fr your words, I am very happy I discovered your blog as well and am looking forward to reading you and following you on your journey.

  17. Hello, I have nominated you for the Shine On Blogger Award. Congratulations, you may follow this link for further details. http://wp.me/p3ia4v-pb Namaste, Oliana Kim

  18. I would be happy to meet you, write me if by any chance you will be visiting Dubai, i will write you if i will passing by Serbia πŸ™‚

  19. When I was in high school I woke up with grey hair like really whitish grey and I woke up my cousins to show them and ask if it was real and they didn’t know what the hell had happened but the next morning it was my normal reddish, brownish, blondish conglomeration but my cousins remember it being grey the night before. Right now I am 32 and its not grey yet but soon I know and I love having red hair but how the heck will I afford to dye it? My hair eats dye for breakfast I need for 4-5 tubs and is way more absorptive than a Bounty paper towel, the dye fades really really fast. I love the color you have in the picture. I haven’t read Discworld I desperately want to because I love love the computer game. I have a collection of My Little Ponies (technically I gave them to my daughter) but I still love them and know their names there are quite a lot of them. I played with them through high school and a little into college lol No joke I like to act out stories πŸ˜› I used to have a writing group for rp and I always dreamed we’d meet and hang out but it didn’t happen. We sent each other gifts sometimes. I met the husband online and I once drove (well hubbie drove cause I can’t drive lol) 100s of miles to comfort an online friend going through a bad break up. You are such a sweetheart!

    • I forgot I met another online friend because I went to his wedding in Holland haha

    • Yay, reading here so many more similarities between the two of us. In this life,there is an age difference, but I am quite damn sure we are twins somewhere πŸ˜€
      Don’t even tell me about the dye! I have to use 3 packs of dye each time I need to repaint everything. If I don’t re-dye for 2 months due to being busy, it looks like I have gray hair with red extensions-_- And the dye, it gets everywhere. I destroyed all the towels in the house and pillowcases with it.
      My love for Discworld started with the computer game as well. My bestest of friends used to play it with his father, we were 10, him 11. His father dyed from hepatitis, we nurtured him alone the two of us in his last days. He vowed to finish the game with his son, but death decided otherwise. He would not finish it without me. We did, at the end. The smile and pride in his eyes, I cannot describe it to you, I am even tearing up as I type this. I wrote about this on my blog allready,on Serbian only tho:)The books are fabulous, you should defenatly take up on it when you have the time,you wont be dissapointed.
      I also met my husband online, he used to be my Guild Master in World of Warcraft. I fell in love with him, told him, flew to his country and 4 days later we were married πŸ˜€ I met a lot of people that I previously only knew online on forums and stuff. It saddens me deeply that I am so fond of them,but none of them is interested in being a friend to me. Makes me feel like a loser and worthless at times.

      • That is so touching and so sad. My husband introduced Disc World to me as I didn’t know anything about computer games! I had my old school Nintendo but like nothing modern I am always so behind. I think it is perfectly possibly that we were in some way related in a past life. A lot of people think weirdly that I look like a ghost from the 1800s (not a living person mind you lol). I have had so many people just stop mid conversation and touch me like they thought I would vanish or to make sure I was real. People often say I don’t seem of the world. Which reminds me of my grandmother who was tall (unlike me), bony, with super white hair, and white skin, and she wore long white dressing gowns and would wonder around at night laughing quietly she scared so many people that spent the night with me including my husband! My husband just randomly sent me a message on ICQ and the first words I ever said to him were Hello Love. We talked for 3 days then he came to the states to see me, drained every bit of money in his bank account to do it too. We got married about 6 months after meeting. I went to Sweden with him later and when we came back to the states we got married. In Sweden people rarely, rarely marry they live together never marry so we are like the only married couple aside from the 50 plus group and immigrants that I know lol You are wonderful people are very skittish I have found. I say this when I am extremely shy lol I am not afraid in the same way though I am not afraid of my heart.

      • My husband’s first online words to me were also “I love you”. it was a first raid for me in his guild, we were doing Serpentshine cavern and the officer who recruited me told him I am Serbian, he just parked his character in front of me and wrote “I love you” on Serbian πŸ™‚
        They tell me I am an exact replica of my great great great grandmother, in appearence. She was a village witch. When I was little, very little, still sleeping in a cradle, I remember seeing a granny-like women puting pinecones in my cradle. Nobody believed me. Many years later, palgued by this expirience,I did a little research and found out pinecones are a protection charm for children born on a Sunday, like me.
        As for past lives, the last one before this I was a judge living in Italy. I have memories of it and past lives that came before that one and I also have the ability to connect with someone through pictures or visuals and see who they were. I stopped doing this long time ago because people would get really scared of me, a complete stranger knew what they dream of,their secrets etc.

      • I believe you wow, to have such an amazing memory to cherish. I don’t resemble the members of my family particularly. I ended up with a strong Cherokee bone structure from my dad’s side underneath a very Irish complexion/coloring from my mom’s side it is a weird combination lol Most people think oh Irish red hair but some people look at me and say what the hell are you. I saw ghosts as a child and both my mom and I dream of people before they die. For her a little girl tells her. I help them cross over which is another difference. I wonder if my own daughter will do the same. Right after her grandfather had a heart attack before we even knew about it she said to me on waking grandpa’s heart hurts. Then we got the call. I guess I am a reaper I don’t know what else to call it. I don’t remember my past lives or nothing clear enough to make sense of it. I know my husband was Henry David Thoreau that is what I tell him I am convinced lol If you can sense anything about me do tell me I would love to know. I am already concerned I have a demonic heritage there is such hideously evil shit in my family and the psychopathy it doesn’t seem human. As a kid I was monstrously strong enough to scare grown men. I am not that strong now I am so scared of hurting anyone accidentally.

      • You should defenatly write me an e-mail πŸ™‚

      • My email address is

        kesaiserris@gmail.com

  20. You are just so honest !
    Loved knowing you! I hope I can get to be in your dream.. The idea fascinated me πŸ˜€

    • I am looking forward to reading more of you as well! And I am very happy that you like the idea, I think that we all have this idea, just not enough time perhaps to dream it through,which I hope will change someday, soon!

  21. I don’t know why I am only finding this page now, Oloriel…but I am truly pleased to know you and read all about you. Bianca xox
    P.S: If you ever want to co-write something, give me a shout. I think our styles could be an interesting mix πŸ™‚

    • I think the pages are very hard to notice on people’s blogs, unles you make one to be the first page to see when someone opens your blog, so a lot of people miss it :/
      I am rather blessed to know you as well, it was like a little sign reading you the first time and we talked about seasons. About a week later from then I found out I am moving to Australia.
      I’d be more then happy to co-write! πŸ˜€

      • Wow! When are you moving? Wonderful – We will organise a co-writing project πŸ™‚ Poetry or fiction?

      • For some reason this comment ended in Spam, so appologies for the late reply. I am due to move around July next year, to Sydney πŸ˜€

  22. So glad to have crossed creative paths!! Thank you for your interest in my work! Cheers to you inspired ma ma writer, I too, have children…two boys 6 and 2 1/2 they are treasures as is your son. Much β™₯ and peace and happy writing to you!

  23. Hello, Oloriel! I am very glad to virtually meet you! I’ve been scrolling through your blog and your writing is beautiful, memorizing even. It looks like we share a taste in music! And I also have always felt misplaced, though where I feel I should have been I’ve no idea, so I’ve lived in books.
    I googled the book series you mention, The Discworld Series, as I’d never heard of it before, now I’ll have to read it!! πŸ™‚

    • Hello C.K.! I am most pleased to have met you and have allready started enjoying your writing. You should most defenately give Discworld a shot, I believe you will not be dissapointed and you will have one more crazy world with magnificent characters to frequent:D

  24. Hi
    From what I read here you seem such a nice person πŸ™‚
    I’m looking forward to reading your blog.
    I hope you enjoyed my blog as well.
    Wish you all the best in the world πŸ™‚

  25. Thank you so much for dropping by wePoets, we really appreciate it. πŸ™‚

  26. I feel like I met my blog soul mate. Ne, ozbiljno… Sve bih i ja tako napisala od reči do reči…

  27. Thanks for the like! Interesting blog : )

  28. This is the first time I took the time to read about you. The best part is you fell in love with yourself. BTW I understand why you don’t want to write about your child. I have the same queasy feeling about writing of any of my family. Must be a writer’s hex from the middle ages. I look forward to more of your work.

    • Thank you very much for stoping by and leaving me a word of your own πŸ™‚
      I agree, it must be some kind of a hex, but I am working on it πŸ˜€

  29. Pleased to meet you! Interesting blog and interesting you.
    So Lets be friends! πŸ˜€

  30. Thank you for following my blog. Happy that you like it πŸ™‚ what an interesting blog you have !! for sure will be back here πŸ™‚

  31. I have nominated you for Most Influential Blogger Award. Please understand that acceptance is not requisite, but do know how much you have blessed me. Should you choose to receive this nomination, further info can be found on my post: http://booknvolume.com/2013/11/26/the-blushing-rose/

  32. thank you for the follow, it’s very encouraging.
    Terry

  33. Thankyou for the kind words you left on my site, we all know what it’s like, in the midst of it all, 2hrs later, 84 picture variants…a little voice whispers, “don’t bore them…”
    Once agin Thankyou.

    • I completely agree! Whenever I am creating something, I always end up with 100 versions of it, that usualy yield 100 more versions each πŸ˜€
      I really found it inspirational and not boring at all, and I am looking forward to seeing more πŸ™‚
      Have a nice day!

  34. it was an honour to be here ,Regards , EM

  35. I am inspired. Thank you for that. I feel like a somnolent alien that needs to be nudged every once in a while in reminder of its many talents. I fall in a slumber under heaviness of this thick, pressing material world. If I don’t as usual do it myself, people like you help me wake up. Thank you πŸ™‚

    • I was immediatly attracted to your blog name, because it is (and even more as of late) a sentence I find myself pronouncing very often.! After browsing I discovered fantastic word weaving, and two languages just like I do! What more can one ask!
      I am looking forward to reading you!

  36. I love your name! It conjures up a darkly beautiful image! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you! I am glad you like it!
      Most people find it hard to write it down though, so I always giggle at the variations πŸ˜€

  37. Take time to smell the beauty around you, letting the influence of life love you, and being the beautiful person that you are.
    My blessings to you…

    3. Why do I write/create what I do?
    4. How does my writing/creating process work?

    In our posts, we will have to mention the person who invited us. In my case, it is Neha (ForgottenMeadows).

    This is the schedule of the corresponding posts:
    mine – June 30
    yours – June 7th

    Let me know if you accept so I can feature you πŸ™‚ Hope you do!

    -Dante

    • Thank you very much for your nomination, I am most honored I was in your thoughts for this, but unfortunately I allready participated in this event a while back, and it would feel like cheating if I repeated it. But thank you once again for nominating me! πŸ™‚

  40. Thank you for sharing. I appreciate honest people.

  41. LOVE this! So sweet and heartfelt. Thank you for sharing a bit about your passions, your dreams, and your special little (wonderful) quirks. My car’s name is Guido, but I’ve not yet named the washer. Perhaps I’ll go run a load and see what occurs to me. πŸ™‚

    • Guido is an excellent name! I hope the washer gets a cool name as well!
      P.S: I recieved your email, but have been very busy, I will answer it later today! Hope you have an awesome day!

      • No worries … and no hurry. As the comedians in the States always say, “I’ll be here all week.” πŸ™‚ Hope you have an awesome day too β€” and I’ll let you know about the washer! (“Shrinky” is my current top pick, but I’m still contemplating.)

  42. Over thinking destroys. Avoid it.

  43. A wonderful introduction! I look forward to diving into your works. One day we will meet. I hope your boy grows up loving and wondrous. Mine did. I look at them in awe now – youngest is 19 – and constantly pinch myself taht their beautiful lives came from mine. Isn’t every day a miracle?

    • That is amazing! I am looking forward to those times, but am at the same time a tiny bit sad that it seems like my boy is growing up way too fast πŸ™‚

  44. I have for some reason only just read this, very moving…i wish you the happiest time with your son…always

    • Thank you! I try my best to always make him see the world through purple shades. Many chastise me for that, and yes, he is spoiled to the bone, but I have no other intentions for him in my heart but to always be happy.
      So many things he will cry about, lose, feel pain. If cookies at 2 AM dispell that a little bit, I’d be damned if I didnt go and make them πŸ™‚
      Thank you for reading my story and about me πŸ™‚

  45. Hi there! Thanks for dropping by writing and works, I love your poetry, the medieval/fantasy feel to it is fantastic.

    • Thank you very much, that compliment made my day! I hope I manage to carry out the fantasy feeling from the writing outside of the home too! Hope you have a wonderful week!

      • Thank you, yourself as well. If I may ask, do you have any advice of blogging? I’d be remiss to skip an opportunity to ask someone who’s clearly got it at lead somewhat figured out.

      • My biggest advice would be: be natural and be honest, because after all, you are looking to genuinly connect with people and to attract people who will offer the same tratement to you. I never get bothered by meeting any sort of a standard or pleasing one same group of people. I always try to be honest, helpful and I am never affraid of reaching out. If I see content I like, I always make sure to write to the creator, even if its just a word or two. I hope this helps πŸ™‚

      • It’s certainly a useful piece of advice. Thank you. πŸ˜€

  46. Hi there, enjoyed reading your profile and poetry, I look forward to following your posts. I wish I lived in the fifties sometimes or maybe a skyrim (less violent though) type world

    • Glad you liked the page!
      I have not played Skyrim much, but I do often fall into the appeal of the fantastical world of Neverwinter πŸ™‚

  47. Hello from Paint The World With Words! I’m Amreen Shaikh and I blog on the above name. Thank you following my blog! I must say, you have an amazing blog & great content! Awesome Work! I wished to contact you, but did not see an email ID! Can you please drop in your email ID on painttheworldwithwords@gmail.com?

    • Hello Amreen, thank you for your words, it is always nice to hear someone found something in the content you offer! I will drop you an email, but my PC time is a bit limited nowadays, so here is my email here in case I dont make it:
      isiltharien@hotmail.com
      Best regards and hope you enjoy your day, we are basking under a glorious storm here, thunders and all πŸ™‚

  49. Love & light

  50. Hi, Thank you so much for the like for my review of Visions of Zarua and also for the follow. I love your gravatar image, where does it come from, I think I’ve seen that image in a place called neverwinter or somewhere similar?

    • It was a pleasure, you really manage to interest me in the book, I want to buy it now πŸ˜€
      You are correct, the avatar is from Neverwinter Nights, it is one of my favourite video games of all time. My favourite character is Deekin, of course, but putting him as an avatar would have a detrimental effect on my ability to converse with other bloggers, I would constantly sing πŸ˜€

      • Lol, I love Neverwinter Nights too. I only discovered the game about 4 years ago when it was on sale for less than Β£1 in a clearance sale! It’s since become one of those games I just want to play again and again :). I had problems with a neverwinter Trojan though which wiped out my whole hard drive after I downloaded a patch :O so I had to start again and haven’t played Hordes of the Underdark yet so please no spoilers :). Do you love any other video games? You’re the first person I’ve found online who likes both books and video games :).

      • Oh, no spoilers, no worries. I love to play Neverwinter with husband, because we can joke and roleplay and see how the game develops from our choices making! I never had problems with game instaling, but I think it is because I really love video games and I always buy collectors editions and stuff (some woman buy shoes, me collectors editions!). There really is a few games that I did not play or dislike, but to name my favourite few its Heroes of Might and Magic, ofcourse the favourite one being 3 (with all its expansion packs!)Disciples (2 fav, I was partial on the 3, but played like mad ’cause of love for the game.), Mass Effect, Diablo (I still my favourite, totally dissapointed in the latest, because they charge 2 much for basically 1 level of play and call it an expansion pack + they fired the original creator of the whole story and that just don;t sit well with me!), Dragon Age, Discworld games. Besides this, I used to play tournaments for Counter Strike (1.6 times), now play horribly with friends and younger brother, same as Dota, HoN, LoL and Smite (why pick one when you can play them all!) Yep, and the list is even longer if you ask me about favourite books πŸ˜€ Hope I did not bore you, I would love to hear your favourites and if you have any memorable game moments! πŸ˜€

      • You didn’t bore me at all :). I think I got a virus from that patch because the official patches just don’t exist anymore and I tried downloading one that other ppl recommended but it obviously wasn’t the best idea! I’ve since bought the deluxe edition (I just can’t find a collectors edition I can afford) and had no issues :).
        As far as the games I play? Well I’ll be honest I haven’t played that many games recently (been going through a tough time plus moving house) and I’ve not really played many games online due mainly to the fact that I have a terrible internet connection where I live! That plus I’ve not known many people who are as into gaming as I am so never had many ppl to play co-op games with. I do love strategy games though, a whole range of them including the sims, civilization, etc and I’ve always loved Sonic games although some more recent games are a bit disappointing…I got a mega drive when I was 10 and it’s what really got me into gaming.
        I’ve got lots and lots of games that I own at home, I can’t ever seem to part with a game and so my collection of discs in their boxes looks ridiculous piled into many boxes at home :).
        I think I’m getting more and more into RPGs though, don’t know why it took me so long to realise I love them, so if you can recommend any good ones (like neverwinter) that have a good offline play as well as online I’d love to hear it.
        Also, can I ask have you played neverwinter nights 2? I haven’t yet but from what I’ve read so many people are disappointed with the ending apparently. Trying to see if it’s worth buying a copy?

      • Hm, there is one thing about me and that is that I am totally brand loyal, without me actually wanting to be, it is something I just feel and act upon it almost unaware. I played Nwn 2, but I think the original was better. Nevertheless, I did buy expansion packs and all, and they were more enjoyable than the initial release. It is defo worth to experience it. But, dunno if you know, Nwn recently launched as an MMORPG and it absolutely sucked 😦 Even with all my Nwn love, I just can;t play it. Perhaps I only feel this way, because I am old (25 is old for me!!! I am a grandma!) and I just don’t like how iconic games that market my childhood are being refreshed with pointless achievements, grindfests and at least 10 choices too many!
        For RTS, I’d say Starcraft, although myself I am absolutely horrible with micro, so my husband says I should stick to SimEverything (Rollercoasters!) or just play 4v4 and be a builder πŸ˜€ The game is great for solo campaign and there is TONS of amazing community maps, like Mafia (it is a mini game where you write, absolutely no skill except verbal necessary! or Tassadar Teaches Typing, where you get to test your skills at how fast and correct you type against other players. There was this third map I loved, but for the life of me I can’t remember it’s name. It did however had magickal bananas!) – so you don’t have to miss out on not having any gaming buddies πŸ™‚

      • I actually still want to try and find nvn 2 games. It’s hard finding a copy on sale in the uk. Most are used (I like a new one just because) and the expansion packs don’t even exist at the moment, no idea where to get them. Hopefully though there will still be the chance.
        As for the first neverwinter I did like shadows better than the original, if only because henchmen could be customized and they took part in conversations too!

        I’m brand loyal too, lol! I’ve got every sims game (except sims 4 which uses origin and that’s the only reason I’ve finally turned away from it) every sonic game I can get, consoles permitting, every worms, stronghold, etc.
        I can’t say anything about that new nvn but it seems to me that plenty of games that release a new version in recent years seem to suck! The newest games always require you to be online – not so good for those of us without a decent internet connection, and they all seem to be released with bits missing that need various patches after release, or they just are so buggy it’s not worth playing them.
        25! That’s not old at all! I’m a bit older, reached that scarey 30 zone! Although I’m secretly pleased that people still think I’m in my early twenties with the way I talk and act :). Not that I sound childish or anything..do I? lol
        Thanks for the advice on those games, will check them out. Hopefully be moving soon too to somewhere where I have a decent internet! Would you believe I haven’t been able to get online for more than twenty minutes at a time since Friday! we have one storm and everything stops working!
        Hope we can remain friends here. I’ve never met anyone online I could speak to about neverwinter, lol! And you are such a nice person to talk to, and I love your blog too πŸ™‚

      • Looking forward to talking! I know what you mean about internet connection and games asking online presence. Back when I lived in Turkey, we had horrible, dreadful internet that really made doing anything online a bother, non the less playing games. I played, but with insane lag and that just made me lose hair instead of enjoy playing with my friends. I also don’t get the whole Be online for single-player nowadays method. I often like to relax and play single-player or hot seat even on games like Heroes of Might and Magic, than online. Would that single player not potentially entice someone into trying the game in the first place, offline, then maybe venture into the online world and pre-existing communities of the game? I would not mind, if the server were at least top notch,but it isn’t always the case, and various matchmaking needs a lot of improvement, to give better game quality yet not be non-inclusive for some.
        And Neverwinter will always be a top game for me. I remember I was so fascinated by the artwork that accompanied it, I literally begged out to use the neighbor’s printer and print out a poster of their iconic eye logo! I also agree with you, I think the story of SoU was much more engaging and interesting than the original, at least for me πŸ™‚

      • Lol, yeah, something about that logo…It’s what drew me in to buying the game.
        What I really love in Neverwinter Nights though is the music. I love the art work but for me it’s the music that I really love so much. I wish I could get a soundtrack of the game but the closest thing I’ve ever found is a soundtrack for nvn2 which I’m thinking about getting even though I haven’t played the game yet!
        Wow, I just realised I’m clogging up your about page with all this talk of neverwinter :o!

      • Not clogging at all! Nwn is a huge part of my personality, I see it as a really REALLY pleasant conversation, so no worries! πŸ˜€
        I get what you say about the game’s music. I remember, when I first time played it, I was little, I borrowed the game from a friend from the neighborhood. My parents weren’t so keen on letting me play anything except solitaire and minesweeper, Aladdin and similar (not because video games bad yadda yadda, my parents at those times were having daily pinball deathmatches till very early in the morning!), so I would have to sneak and play when they are sleeping, making it impossible to play anything with the sound on. You can imagine my surprise and how extra fresh and exciting replaying Nwn with my husband was, in our own place, sound on for the first time πŸ™‚

      • :). Yep, to me the sound of a computer game is as important as the graphics, the music can just suck you in, at least it does for me :). Have you played nwn to full difficulty level? I tried playing on normal when I first got it and for me it’s not only fun to replay as someone completely different but also turn the difficulty up, although I do seem to die a lot in the early stages :o!

      • The difficulty levels are a treasure in itself, at least with the “old” games like Nwn and Diablo I and II are. It feels like an entirely new game and I admit, takes some special pausing and tactic pondering at places πŸ™‚ I died quite a lot at the beginning too, mostly because I usually play full melee classes with tons of shiny armor, so I get overconfident πŸ˜€

      • Thank goodness we can pause the game! After playing through Neverwinter I thought I’d try a really old game Baldur’s Gate (have you haerd of it?), and not only is that game hard and I keep dying, but you can’t pause the game while in inventory mode!
        I chose paladin the first time I played nvn, I guess on some level I’d like to be the hero, lol.

      • I remember Baldur’s Gate ofcourse, but I was rarely behind the wheel! I was most often just observing that one, my very good friend or my older brother playing,and would cheer and yell besides πŸ˜€
        Paladins are ok, but I liked them better in the old games, as opposed to modern paladins. Warrior was always my favourite, melle classes in general. Diablo taught me sorcerers and magic weavers are often squishy, so I would opt for practically a tank :DOnly until World of Warcraft I played melle exclusively, when draenei shaman stole my heart haha

The Inner Wilderness

Plato had amazing insight into the question of finding the unknown. "How will you go about finding that thing the nature of which is totally unknown to you?" he wondered. The deep inner space within yourself, the inner wilderness within you asks for you to explore it, and in the process discover yourself. What better way to do that than through writing? This space is a personal blog for your reading, and my writing adventure. Go through the blog that follows to, perhaps, discover something as well.
